On Friday, Louisiana‚Äôs first lady Supriya Jindal and three of the Robertsons of ‚ÄúDuck Dynasty‚ÄĚ fame rappelled down One American Place, a 24-story, 308-foot building in Baton Rouge. The Over the Edge for Adoption event organized by the Louisiana Family Forum aims to bring attention to the more than 300 foster care children awaiting adoption in Louisiana.

LFF hopes to provide a unique moment for increasing awareness of the nearly 400 adoption-eligible children in Louisiana‚Äôs Foster Care program. This once-in-a-lifetime experience will feature individuals, including policy makers, pastors and key state leaders, rappelling One American Place in Downtown Baton Rouge on May 9th. This event is year two of a three-phase initiative where LFF seeks to reduce red tape in foster care adoptions, raise awareness and connect 100 children to permanent families.
Adoptive mom Korie Robertson was joined by two of her children, Sadie and John Luke.
